Roger Protz, one of the world's leading authorities on beer and brewing, devotes this book entirely to the world of stout and porter, from its fascinating history rooted in Dr. Johnson's London, James Joyce's Ireland and George Washington's America to its current renaissance. It is a richly illustrated celebration of the culture of stout, past and present, with everything from literary quotations and songs to cocktails and recipes.
It covers over 300 stouts and porters in a gazetteer of breweries, brewpubs and brews and offers tasting notes and histories of the key brands across the world from arctic Finland to sun-baked Nigeria.
